Microwave does not heat or defrost - GE Microwave Ovens

    When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

    Any unusual noises?

    Is it louder or quieter than usual?

    Do you have the model number?

    These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Thanks for getting back to me but we had someone look at it and they said it wasn't worth fixing, would be too expensive. Cheaper to get a new one.

2 slices of bread wrapped in paper towel microwave set on defrost set 35 seconds caught fire


Microwaves work by friction. They blast water molecules in the food so they move fast, just like rubbing your hands together makes them hot. Some types of microwave in defrost mode actually apply FULL POWER for a short period of time so to make the product warm to the touch. This heat then penetrates down to the core of the food, ensuring full defrost. In your case the heat was sufficient enough to heat the dry paper towel to set it on fire.
Bread is better defrosted on the low power setting as sliced bread is very thin. Items should only be defrosted on the defrost setting that are thick and need to be completely defrosted on the inside. Remember microwaves only penetrate the surface of food, making that hot. Thermal conduction does the rest.
You should never use paper towels in a microwave unless the instructions for doing the food say so. You wouldn't put a paper towel in a gas or electric oven, so don't put them in a microwave.

Hi sharp microwave R-33ST 900w was used to defrost now won't heat anything up how do I change settings back?


It should default to the highest power setting.

If not, you can reset it by unplugging the power for a minute or two, plugging it back in, and setting the clock.

Otherwise, refer to your owner's manual.

How do you defrost on the microwave


What is need to set the program, select defrost function then select the weight of the food to be defrosted and push the value of the weight. Now select the heat value and press start as the processor will then decide the time to defrost.
This is a simple program setting or else you can choose a preset heating defroster program.

It runs but does not heat. last nite used the speed defrost now it won't heat for anything made a noise while on speed defrost


sounds like the magnetron may be gone on it. this creates the heat. if the unit is older, it's not worth repairing, but if newer, check you manual for the warranty. some mags have 3-5 years warranty.
